With this updated edition, authors Randy Schueller and Perry Romanowski re-emphasize the importance of providing introductory technical information to those who would like to improve their understanding of cosmetic science. The authors were frustrated with the lack of technical resources available for beginners in this industry. They believe that this lack of introductory material has a negative impact on the industry¿s ability to recruit and retain talented chemists. Since the 1999 publication of the original Beginning Cosmetic Chemistry, thousands of new chemical raw materials and new formulations have been developed, countless new marketing concepts have been tested and hundreds (if not thousands) of new cosmetic regulations have been enacted. The four major sections of this book include: -Orientation, Tools and Terms -Cosmetic Ingredients and Vehicles -Product Development -Product Testing This newly updated edition will be a valuable resource for years to come!Schueller, Randy is the author of 'Beginning Cosmetic Chemistry An Overview for Chemists, Formulators, Suppliers and Others Interested in the Cosmetic Industry', published 2003 under ISBN 9780931710988 and ISBN 0931710987.
